IMPORTANT SECURITY NOTE

It is always good to remind people of these things. 

Microsoft just released a very important security update. – http://update.microsoft.com/windowsupdate/v6/default.aspx?ln=en-us This is to fix a newly discovered exploit that can infect you with a virus by simply viewing a picture on a website or otherwise

Be sure your virus protection is updated and get a free antispyware program such as Microsoft AntiSpyware or Spybot     You could also use an internet security suite that includes adware protection, or a a virus program that has spyware protection built in, such as AVIRA Desktop for Windows

You can get a free online virus and adware scan from Panda Software, but it doesn’t constantly your internet connection like a standalone program does.

Good pages to get more info are http://www.geekstogo.com/,   http://castlecops.com/, http://tomcoyote.org/, http://forums.techguy.org/54-security/, and http://www.wilderssecurity.com/index.php .  Some of these places have forums where you can get help with a difficult virus or adware problem for free.
